Since Summer 2003 College of the Desert has used Datatel to make improvements to the student registration and services area. We have grown with Datatel through several different user interface releases and web integrations. Our students have taken control of their experience through the use of WebAdvisor for registration, payments, transcripts and more. See the descriptions below and follow the links to learn more about the main points of our Administrative Computing area.

While Datatel has added a lot to our student experience, it wasn't able to do it all alone. As with many student system packages, there are needs that require third party add-ons.
